These vital years set the foundation for success in school and in life


Chattertots for Pre-Schools  

Research suggests that children who start ahead, stay ahead! Competence in speech, language, literacy and communication are some of the most important skills your child will need for success in school and at Kids First, we want children to start ahead. 

We run the "Chattertots" programme in pre-schools to support ALL children (regardless of ability) to improve their skills in speech, language, literacy and communication. The sessions are delivered by a speech and language therapist who will come in to your school to run specialist groups.

Sessions are delivered in small groups (up to 6 in a group) at school for 45 minutes. Every session targets the following key areas:

  • Listening skills
  • Speech
  • Social awareness 
  • Vocabulary
  • Remembering and following instructions
  • Expressing ideas coherently
  • Confidence
  • Verbal and non-verbal language
  • Pre-literacy skills
